    1791 Large Eagle Cent, AU Details
    Plain Edge Variant, W-10615

    1791 Washington Large Eagle Cent, Plain Edge -- Environmental Damage -- NGC Details. AU. Baker-15 Variety, W-10615, Musante GW-15 Variety. A Plain Edge variety of the 1791 Large Eagle cent was mentioned by Fuld and Breen. Bowers notes in his colonial Encyclopedia that a Plain Edge coin was reported in the 19th century but not confirmed or traced today. William Baker's original reference published in 1885 listed only the usual Lettered Edge variety. This coin is well detailed with deep walnut-brown patina, although localized areas of granularity preclude a numeric grade from NGC. Listed on page 83 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: George Fuld; Donald G. Partrick.
